STATEMENT BY MAYOR MICHAEL R. BLOOMBERG ON HRA COMMISSIONER VERNA EGGLESTON JOINING BLOOMBERG FAMILY FOUNDATION
"When I decided to try to move from the private sector to the public sector, Verna was one of the first people I turned to for the broadest and most ambitious view of what could be done to make New York City and the world a better place. As I plan to move from the public to the non-profit sector, Verna's vision is exactly what I need again. Her early work in 2001 laid out the blueprint for what our social service agencies have been able to accomplish over the last five years, and I am very happy that she has agreed to help guide the next phase of my life's work."
